The Owl Challenge

Drawings, Relationships
Mr. Owl


So from the heights of previews and openings in London to the day-to-day drawings at home with his boys. Today’s challenge from our eldest son was to draw an owl never seen before. Even I had ago! (though I am not going to upload my drawings on here) This mixes the cartoon designer, the interest in fashion and the conceptual sculptural ideas all in one sketch! Happy sketching:)

Snow ‘Sculpture’ Man

Egyptian, Relationships, Soul searching




So the boys are either blessed or disadvantaged to have a father as a sculptor when it comes to making a snowman. However, I must say I have seen some amazing works of art posted on Facebook of  what I presume must be parents constructions from the snow. The boys were given their little tasks or packing and tapping into shape. There was a little dispute over the hat choice. Wonder if you can guess who it was who chose this one, Father or Son? I think if we had been in a garden or field rather than a yard we may have had a more stunning result. It is also far too cold for the Egyptian though. This was impressive enough and is still standing. We did all ventured for a sledge afterwards and then warmed up with soup. Super.

'The solar system'

'Solar system'

One happy little boy took his ‘Solar system’ sculpture into school this morning. The perks of having Baba as a Sculptor is that Mummy’s more primary school approach to making planets got taken over into a more ‘professional’ approach. Fun was had in trying to find the right size balls. Makes a good guessing game as to what we have used! Result : rather impressive looking planet model and a 4-year-old who knows the planet order by heart. One anxious husband preparing for some gallery visits and interviews. First stop, Switzerland.
